Brad Jones, Ph.D.

Brad
Jones
Associate Professor of Immunology in Medicine

Dr. Jones received his PhD in Immunology from the University of Toronto, where he studied the cellular immune response to HIV infection, and continued this work as a postdoctoral fellow at the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT, and Harvard in the labs of Bruce Walker and Darrell Irvine. His current research is focused on understanding how to maximally harness innate and adaptive cellular immune responses to contribute to the elimination of the HIV reservoirs that persist in individuals on long-term therapy, and thus to inform efforts to cure infection. Work in the Jones laboratory spans from in vitro experiments using a bank of clinical HIV samples, to humanized mice as pre-clinical models of HIV infection, through to clinical trials. A significant component of this work is conducted in the context of the NIH funded Martin Delaney ‘BELIEVE’ collaboratory, for which Dr. Jones is co-Principal Investigator.  Dr. Jones also holds NIH funding to study novel biomaterials-based approaches to enhance immunotherapy, and to develop novel mouse models in which to study HIV infection of the central nervous system. Outside of the lab, Brad enjoys running (along the East river), skiing, and studying Hebrew.
